    I know! I’ve had so much fun experimenting with them – and how many times in life do you get to “experiment” with truffles?! I think that my favourite dish so far is just simple scrambled eggs with truffles – it’s a dish that allows me to properly taste the truffles with no interuption from other ingredients. My Italian friend passed on a recipe for tagiatelli with truffles on the other day. That’s definitely another one to try.For my bookclub, Mum, I combined two of the truffle’s favourite friends – the potato and the eggs – and made a Truffle and Potato Frittata which certainly seemed to go down very well!
